. in california you had the new system. the democrats are going to make gains in california or could make gains in california. that's something that has to come in on a state level. pennsylvania is a perfect example. states that obama won by five points. i think the delegation of pennsylvania will be like 13/5 republican coming out. >> i'm sorry, it brings it back to the fact that all politics are local. if i ever learned anything before, i've learned that about this presidency and how it's not just one man that can do things. we have to really pay attention. >> yes. >> people don't. >> i think our chances of getting universal registration, same day voter registration are far better than ending the gerrymandering which is at the state level. democrats in the house won by over 500,000 votes and yet they only picked up 18. i can assure you they'll fight back. >> when we come up next, i've got a letter. y'all know you love my mailbag. my letter today to ohio's john houston. stay with us. look how small they were!
